Master in Neurosciences, Aix-Marseille University, AMU

  •  Master project : Brain Oscillation Entrainment to Rhythm (MEG)

Bachelor in Biology (Adaptative & Cognitive Neurosciences), Aix-Marseille University, AMU

Research interests

Auditory cortex, Basal ganglia, auditory-motor interactions, auditory timing perception, temporal recalibration, music, rhythm perception

Current projects and methods

Neural correlates of auditory timing perception

I investigate the temporal structure in auditory perception. I am specifically interested in auditory-motor interaction as well as on the neural correlates of rhythm perception.

These projects will be studied using behavioral paradigms, EEG or fMRI depending on the research question.
